McAfee in Miami after Deportation from Guatemala; Anti-Virus Software Founder Says He Did Not Kill Neighbor in Belize, Uncertain of Future


Kennedy, Kelli, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


MIAMI BEACH, FlA. Antivirus software founder John McAfee said Thursday that U.S. authorities have made no efforts to question him since he arrived in Miami after weeks of evading Belizean authorities who want to ask him about the death of his neighbor.

"Why would they want to question me, about what?" a tired- looking but sharply dressed McAfee told a throng of reporters Thursday from the steps of his South Beach hotel.

The multimillionaire was characteristically chatty and seemed to enjoy posing for pictures with tourists and signing autographs.

McAfee was deported from Guatemala after sneaking in illegally from Belize, where police want to question him in the death of U.S. expatriate Gregory Viant Faull, who lived near him on an island off Belize's coast. U.S. officials said there was no active arrest warrant for McAfee that would justify taking him into custody.

Once he was on the plane, he said, "I had the warmest welcome of my life. The captain patted me on the shoulders and said, ' We're here to help you, sir, please come with us.'"

He said he planned to stay in Miami until his girlfriend, 20- year-old Belizean Samantha Vanegas, and a woman he called "Amy" could join him.

The 67-year-old British native said he doesn't know where he'll live or how he'll rebuild his life.
